By now, we’ve all heard the terms robot and housekeeper.
The two are commonly used interchangeably, and while the robot job is one that requires a certain level of skill, the job of a housekeeping job is not.
That is to say, the majority of housekeepers in the United States, and most other developed countries, work as housekeepers, often in remote locations where the human workers have not been trained to perform the tasks of housekeeping.
These are places where people often lack basic knowledge of basic hygiene practices, or have no experience with basic housekeeping skills, such as the use of hand sanitizer.
To make matters worse, many of these people are not trained to properly perform tasks that the robot might perform.
For example, a robot might be tasked with cleaning a room when no one is in the room, and may not know how to do that.
In these situations, it can take a lot of time and effort to clean the room properly.
That means that, while housekeepers do not have a lot to do, they often don’t have much to offer in return.
A robot could clean a room without much skill, but would still be useful to have in place for a cleaning job.
In the same way, a house cleaning robot might work well for cleaning rooms, but not much else.
If the robot is expected to do a certain task in a certain time period, the robot could perform the task effectively.
But, if it is expected not to do certain tasks, the robotic might have difficulty with certain tasks that are expected to be performed.
In short, a lot can go wrong in housekeeping, especially when the robots job is to do the tasks that people in a given situation might want to do.
As housekeepers we work with a lot in the house.
It is important to understand this fact, so that we can design robots that do the housekeeping work that we want to, and not the things that we don’t.
